Controversies over awards are normally usual and it is expected after every awards ceremony is held. The recently held 3 Music Awards has not been an exception as cross section of Ghanaians have blasted the organizers over some of the winners and losers.
One of such rants came from widely-known Ghanaian blogger and TV Host, Zionfelix who has blasted the awards scheme via his Facebook post. According to him, he does not understand why Bethel Revival Choir should win an award over bigger acts such as Koda, Joe Mettle, Patience Nyarko, Diana Hamilton and others.
He alleged that awards schemes in Ghana have turned into an avenue for promotion of new acts rather than handing out objective and correct winners. According to the host of Celebrity Ride with Zionfelix, it is time organizers of awards in the country are made to know that awards are not made to promote certain people.
Bethel Revival Choir on the night swept three awards after beating off the likes of Koda, Diana Hamilton, Patience Nyarko and co to win the Gospel Song of the year and Gospel Artiste of the Year awards. They also pushed off R2Bees and others to claim the Best Group of the Year at the event held at the Fantasy Dome.
